Vegan delivery-only restaurant Lucky Cat Vegan has recently opened in Dallas, Texas, offering a huge variety of 100% plant-based food that can only be ordered via food delivery app Uber Eats.

The virtual vegan restaurant has been created by dietitian-chef Navin Hariprasad of Indian-Texan-Mexican fusion restaurant Spice in the City Dallas.

“Having a virtual restaurant really streamlines things for the restaurateur,” Hariprasad told Dallas Observer.

“You’re not having to build a whole separate brick-and-mortar and deal with the variables when it comes to overhead and staffing a full restaurant.”

Lucky Cat Vegan restaurant offers plant-based dishes featuring sweet chili “beef” meatballs, cauliflower “steak” with cashew and raisin pulao, crispy hoisin tofu and veggies with basmati Rice, and Poblano Impossible Burger topped with tempura poblano fritters, poblano aioli, spinach, jalapenos, pickles, onions, and vegan cheddar cheese.

“My mom’s a strict vegetarian, and growing up, she made a lot of different types of cuisines — Indian, Mexican — but it was always vegetarian,” said Hariprasad.

“I never missed meat at home because she was making such a good variety of food and it was so flavorful.”

All dishes are prepared in the kitchen of Spice in the City Dallas, which is an omnivore restaurant, but in separate pans and fryers to avoid cross-contamination.

“We use a separate fryer for vegan and non-vegan items and separate pans, too. We don’t do cross-contamination,” Hariprasad explains.

“As a food service manager and public health practitioner, I definitely understand the importance and cultural sensitivity of this. We take it very seriously.”

Lucky Cat Vegan can only be availed at Uber Eats for now, but Hariprasad plans on expanding to other platforms as well.

“We want to get our feet wet, assess the volumes first and then focus on expansion,” Hariprasad concludes.
